      Hi Debbie,

      I'm not a terribly active member of this board but I've been reading
      your postings from time to time. While I don't have any magical
      advice, I'd just like to say I'm truly sorry for the pain you are
      feeling now. It's heartbreaking to see our best buddies suffering.

      I'd certainly try the pain patches at least for a while to see how
      she fares - you don't want to put poor Treacle down and then
      wonder "what if" later.

      I'll keep good thoughts and say a prayer for you and Treacle.

      Nancy (and Bogie)
